Too much consumption of Vodka can be bad for health and also your beauty, but Did you know that Vodka can also make you look gorgeous and beautiful? Here are some amazing beauty uses for vodka that you probably didn’t know:
DIY Natural body spray
A food grade vodka helps dissolve and blend essential oils effectively and makes for a great base for natural body sprays and natural perfumes. Take your favourite essential oil, you may take up to 3 or work with just one. Total amount of essential oil drops used should be 10 drops in 100 ml of vodka. Now you may divide these into 2 essential oils or 3 or just 10 drops of any 1 essential oil of your choice. In 6 days your mixture will be ready to be used as a natural body spray.
Do remember however do not spray this onto your clothes it may discolour them or give you nasty spray spots, plus this mixture is highly inflammable so it is advisable not to spray it on clothes.
Vodka is a great solvent and its dissolves the active constituents of herbs into a liquid form and in this way you can make herb tincture of various herbs. A tincture is an extract of the herb, it is called a tincture because the medium used as solvent is an alcohol. A food grade – 90 grade vodka should be used to make a tincture. Tinctures can be used internally or externally. My personal favourite is the rose petal tincture also called the rose absolute extract. It smells amazing, and has medicinal properties of rose.
Vodka is an alcohol which makes it a good antiseptic since it kills bacteria, moreover it also kills odor causing bacteria which makes it perfect for use in natural DIY liquid roll-on deodorants
